There is a maddening allure to this podcast. When I first began listening, I thought: "There is no way you can talk about beauty products for an hour and make it interesting." Well, I was totally wrong in part because this podcast is about so much more than beauty products. Brooke has created a podcast about beauty and the fascinating beauty philosophies and lives of so many interesting women who are magical go-getters. It's less about advertising an expensive lotion and more about what people's routines and beauty philosophies reveal about themselves. Also, I just love how I get boujee black girl vibes from this podcast. It's an unapologetic celebration of something long seen as frivolous featuring black women (and non-black women, sure). I LOVE it. Also also, I love Brooke's interview style.

Amazing

Rank #1: Behind The Highlight Reel Ft. Hannah Bronfman

Podcast cover
Read more

Hannah Bronfman is the founder of HBFIT, DJ and wellness enthusiast. On this episode we talk about it all — from the superficial e.g. what’s it like to have Nikki Nelms do you hair and the best way to lose weight (it involves eating a lot of fat) to deeper topics like how bad relationships often serve as a way to break through.

We discuss growing up in NYC, what it was like planning her fabulous wedding in Morocco, how she’s thinking about aging and potentially motherhood, what products she swears by and how she’s had to advocate for herself as a woman in business.

Rank #2: Being Chic AF by Doing Whatever You Want Ft Sophia Roe

Podcast cover
Read more

“I have a story. It’s hard, it’s gnarly but it’s not about the story, it’s what you do with it.” - Sophia Roe, my incredible guest for this special episode of Naked Beauty.

Sophia’s wisdom, humor and excitement for life are all so refreshing and a joy to witness. I loved learning about how she got her start in high-end restaurants, then to catering, and how her love of food has evolved over time. We talk clean beauty and the correlation between skin and food, make-up girls vs skincare girls, curly hair care, and how her esthetician changed her skin forever.

Sophia grew up in and out of foster care. Her mother, who suffered from substance abuse and addiction, was still there for her in her own unique way that Sophia remembers fondly. We talk about how her iconic haircut came to her in a dream, moving to New York City and finding her style. She shares that she got her first manicure at 28 and what it was like for her to suddenly work at an office when she began working at MILK Makeup.

Listen to hear us discuss: tattoos, infrared facials, finding confidence when you need to be on camera, lack of diversity in the wellness industry and how she handles it, her must-have beauty products, the book she’s writing and so much more!

Rank #3: Primers, Acids, Into the Gloss & Shaker Heights ft Ashley Weatherford

Podcast cover
Read more

“I loved beauty without knowing it” - my guest Ashley Weatherford, Senior Editor at Into The Gloss

Ashley has been an authority in beauty for years and I’ve followed her career since the beginning – so I was incredibly excited to have her on and learn her story: from Ohio to Northwestern to NY. Ashley wanted to be a lawyer but started a beauty blog on the side for fun, which eventually landed her a position at New York Magazine. We talk about the power of her recommendations and if she feels guilt about inspiring people to buy more.

We discuss swiping Sephora samples when you love beauty but you’re on a budget, if she feels strongly about products being natural vs synthetic, what it’s like to prepare for a feature on Into the Gloss & that Top Shelf moment, what beauty treatments she thinks are overrated & of course tons of SKINCARE. Ashley has the most amazing skin (says she used to have bad skin) and we go into lots of detail on her routine and the products she loves.

Rank #4: Celibate, Sober & Fasting Ft. Danielle Prescod

Podcast cover
Read more

BET Style editor, Danielle Prescod, and I talk through A LOT in this last episode of 2017. Danielle doesn’t drink, “doesn’t enjoy food like that” AND she’s celibate — clearly, she’s got some super-human willpower.

We discuss Meghan Markle, what working in fashion does to your closet, what therapy has done for her, dating in NYC, and how Danielle balances her work & downtime even though she’s a self-described ‘content monster with a pathological need for attention’. Danielle’s introduction to fasting and the cult of Dr. Charles Passler, started out as a story she was working on for ELLE but soon developed into a total body transformation and entirely new approach to eating.

We discuss her matcha latte, bone broth and tea diet, and getting your body into a ketogenic state for maximum fat burning. Listen for: Racially Screening Soul Cycle instructors (lol!) Hiring Glam Squads For Nights Out Working Out & Finding the Right Hairstyle Getting “Eyebrow Shamed” by your Facialist The Benefits of Clearing Out Your Closet What Therapy has Helped her Learn & Avoiding “Prescription Pushers” Going Blonde “Instagram Face” & a lot more

Rank #5: Don't Contour Before Your Date Ft. Lindsey Metselaar

Podcast cover
Read more

“My exes have really hot exes. And I need them to be hot.”— today’s guest Lindsey Metselaar Lindsey, who also hosts her own fab podcast — We Met at Acme, a show about millennial dating in NYC, had a lot to say & strong opinions that kept me cracking up the entire time.

Lindsey shares how she felt about herself growing up, being the ‘elephant in the room’ in high school and curly-hair shame. I ask her if she really eats everything posted on @dontexpectsalads and we talk about a misguided anorexia intervention from well-meaning friends (she does eat for the record). We discuss dating apps Hinge and Raya, how Lindsey gets ready for dates and how men don’t really understand how much make-up goes into the ‘no-make-up look’. We cover Brazilian waxes vs landing strips and why guys get away with having ‘full bushes’. Lindsey describes her ideal woman, why she prefers her exes to have hot exes, her thoughts on lip injections, thick eyebrows, nose jobs in the Jewish community and love for dry shampoo.

Rank #8: The Scam of Being Yourself Ft. Recho Omondi

Podcast cover
Read more

Recho is a young, NY-based, fashion designer who isn’t afraid to speak her mind, no matter who’s listening. Growing up between the midwest and Nairobi, she nurtured a love of fashion early by creating collages, explaining “any black girl I could get my hands on, I was going to cling on to for dear life". She now casts beautiful black models for her brand Omondi. We talk about the importance of being yourself, her serious beef with American Vogue, and how growing up the subtleties of not being able to find beauty products for you, or having platforms to learn about yourself, can impact the relationship we have with our own beauty routines, especially our hair. I get to hear about how she went platinum blonde and we reflect on Atlanta’s weave culture. She’s got love for the Glossier products but likes to keep her beauty routine simple. Recho makes everything seem effortless(from her career, to getting press attention and speaking out when no one else will) and her approach to beauty is no different.

Eating for beauty is a very real thing. I talk to Dani Cohen about her super-impressive diet that revolves around natural unprocessed foods. Her diet wasn’t always perfect though, she did a complete overhaul when she realized that the carb-heavy, processed food she used to eat was making her sick. We talk about bone broths, craving nut butters, bullet proof coffee, throwing out birthday cake and horrid food trends. I also learn to say no to agave!

  • A therapist who ‘gets it’

Rank #15: Self-Healing & Minding Your Business Ft Aala

Podcast cover
Read more

Aala is a very special person who's been able to self-heal and overcome a lot. Only 26, she's deeply aware of her purpose and it's so inpspring - I got a little emotional during this one. She's Sudanese-American and grew up in between cultures. We talk about how Sudanese women approach beauty, her relationship with her hair and how it changed when she got sick. Women's health and chronic illness is something that's not discussed often and so Aala is willing to talk about her private experience in detail – from the moment her hair kept falling out, getting rashes on her skin, experiencing chronic fatigue, migraines, muscle pain, etc. and then slowly rebuilding from there. 


We discuss the role of doctors verses a holistic approach, how her illness made her feel ugly for the first time in her life and how to handle a serious diagnosis. She discovered Dr. Sebi and began implementing these holistic principles to create a cleanse. An elimination diet addressed her gut/digestive issues. We also get into accessible beauty - you don't have to have a $75 jade roller to practice self-car (but she's got nothing against jade rollers, so get your roll on if it suits you). Aala explains how she compliments herself to feel empowered and how minding your business, drinking water are her top beauty tips!

From product development at Glossier to the front lines of L’Oreal — Diarrha has seen a lot and I was so eager to hear all the beauty TEA & it is *hot* – I had a jaw on the floor moment during our chat! I also learned A LOT - Diarrha talks about the science of skin, how products are formulated and women of color being excluded from clinical trials. We discuss Drunk Elephant, how Sephora uses data to market products brilliantly, how she found herself at Glossier & she shares all of her favorite products! Additional gems:

  • she demystifies sunscreen & hyaluronic acid 
  • why you don’t need expensive cleanser
  • skin bleaching vs skin brightening 
  • makeup as second skin

Chrissy, senior fashion editor at Bazaar.com, has some advice for hopefuls wanting to work in fashion: "If you don’t love it, you won’t last a week".


Chrissy tells me what it’s like being a digital editor in today’s hyper-connected world and why her perspective as a woman of color is important right now. We discuss tokenism in casting, the early days of fashion fandom, nailing the perfect work outfit (it involves denim), and of course all things beauty: foundation (who is it really for?),miracle cures for cystic acne, her relationship with her hair dresser and love for Badgal Riri.

My favorite part of the interview? Just in time for summer, Chrissy gives me her candid POV on posting bikini pics and it’s an attitude more women could learn from.

Rank #18: Iran, Fashion vs Tech, Organic Soap & Keto Ft. Negarin Sadr

Podcast cover
Read more

"I find the body to be a very sacred place and I don’t think that you need to get attention by exposing your skin, I think you can get attention by dressing interesting." - my guest Negarin, on the modest fashion movement and her personal style

Negarin has always been a go-getter. In the same year we met, I watched her launch her own fashion line,Negarin London, debut at London Fashion Week. She was also really nice to me when I moved to London (which I can’t say for most girls). We discuss how she came to understand self-presentation growing up in Iran and how the hijab changes beauty standards. We talk about her father’s intensity and commitment to human rights and her Mom’s phobia of sun exposure. I learn how this relates to colorism and an unfair premium on fair skin that seems to be a global phenomenon. We talk about COLOR: why she loves wearing pastels and how good pink and coral look on darker skin.

“I want to be loud about the fact that I’m different” is Negarin’s stance on standing out in the tech world where everyone tends to look the same. Her skincare routine is super simple and she believes the more you touch your face and mess with it, the more problems you’ll have with your skin. She also shares her experience following a fully ketogenic diet which made her ‘feel like a bird’ because she just had so much energy. Apparently salmon, avocado and spinach is the best way to delve into Keto but I’ll take her word for it because it sounds like entirely too much work (urine strips & weighing food are involved). We talk hair, history of hijab, See below for all of the amazing products mentioned:


The Products Negarin Loves:

(very simple skincare routine)

Bioderma lip balm

Barbara Sturm Lip Balm

REN moisturizer

Rank #19: Creating a Signature Look Ft. Lucie Zhang

Podcast cover
Read more

Lucie Zhang, who oversees social @voguemagazine, has a signature look that I totally envy — perfectly cut bangs, blonde tips and a dramatic winged liner, every.single.day. On this episode, I learn that her signature haircut was the result of a happy accident in Poland and die over her period-free life (it’s been six years thanks to Lo Loestrin, #jealous). We discuss asian beauty standards, eyelid surgery, getting fetishized on dating apps, the first black bachelorette, wearing sweatpants to Vogue, body FOMO from Instagram scrolling, the genius of Pat McGrath, the eyelash extension addiction spiral, and this amazing new app, Hello Ava, that’s basically a free dermatologist on call.

Rank #20: From the Bronx to Paris Ft Annya Santana

Podcast cover
Read more

Annya Santana, who grew up in the Bronx and was born in the Dominican Republic, bought a one way ticket to Paris 4 years ago after heartbreak and started her clean beauty line Menos Mas (which means Less is More). Before finding herself in Paris, we talk about her experience growing up in NY and working in the early days of streetwear after finding herself in fashion PR. She explains that Paris is surprisingly afro-centric and we discuss the benefits of letting the day unfold — the Parisian way. We get into the moment the Bronx seems to be having (from Cardi B, to the Bodega Boys) and how people of color are now taking ownership for their contributions to culture.


Annya is majorly into health and fitness — an awakening that happened over time. She tells me about how she changed her entire approach to eating (first to clear her skin) but then realized how much better she felt after eating clean. In addition to fixing her skin issues, her cleanse eased the pain of menstrual cramps. We also get into: running the NY Marathon, wellness for free, creating her dual-gender, all-natural skincare, her Mom’s DIY remedies inspiring her, making hand cream for her Dad, acne scarring, changing your face via FaceTune, stretch marks, moisturizing as meditation, hormones, acupuncture, Dominican salons and embracing her natural hair texture, the body pos movement and its implications & much more!
